    Hello from the American Midwest

    Welcome to the forum. I also browse reddit and discord, but actually read every post here.

    Rikishi Status - 2021 Aki

    Totally agree. He has lots of potential, but he needs to ping-pong around in Makushita for some time to develop.

    Aki Basho 2021 - Discussion Thread (Spoilers!)

    Uh oh, Hoshoryu just swung his arm in excitement after winning his match. Good thing he's not a Mongolian Yokozuna or we'd be subjected to endless statements about it for the next week.

    Aki Basho 2021 - Discussion Thread (Spoilers!)

    Chiyoshoma got a win, but he just delayed the inevitable by another day.

    The Wall 2021

    Sadly to me, looks like Shishi is going to hit the wall pretty hard this tournament.

    Aki 21 day 2 Pics raw overview

    I love the pic dump and am happy to see this return. Thank you. I think this post is enough and no additional work to sort by paper is necessary from my perspective.

    Aki talk

    I like Kotonowaka's strategy. Flailing about frantically is the path to victory for sure.

    Aki Basho 2021 - Discussion Thread (Spoilers!)

    You forgot to add that Shodai will continue to flip flop between kadoban and not kadoban with every basho. We'll constantly be on the edge of our seats as to whether there will be an Ozeki at all with each new kadoban effort.

    Aki Yusho Predictions?

    Didn’t take long for Shodai to be Shodai and prove that wrong.

    Aki Basho 2021 - Discussion Thread (Spoilers!)

    Great day 1 for me. 3/4 wins from the guys I’m following closely. Tochinoshin, Tobizaru, and Hoshoryu all had good wins. Only Endo let me down today. I’m not so sure I believe Takakeisho’s pre-basho comments about being completely healed. Not a good start for a kadoban Ozeki. Down in Makushita, I’m really excited about Ishizaki and his potential.

    New kesho mawashi

    That Hakuyozan one is great. I really like how it was dyed using flowers from that particular region of Japan. I’m sure seeing him wear that will have a lot of meaning to his local fans.

    Ridiculous Predictions Aki 2021

    And the entire podcast is executed in flawless English.

    Corona and sumo

    That's good news about the negative tests.. There should be enough time for Ichinojo to fully recover and participate. He might be a little rusty though since he probably won't be practicing with anyone.

    Grand Sumo Breakdown - John Gunning Interview

    I listen to Grand Sumo breakdown. I’ve listened to all of the others, but I have to limit myself. Not enough time to listen and read everything. I also follow sumo on Reddit, Twitch, and Discord. I’m more active on Discord than anywhere else.

    Aki joint keiko sessions

    Glad it will be streamed again. These are really fun to watch.
